The aircraft will load up in a 'ready for takeoff' state unless:
- You are loading a previously saved Warrior II flight, in which case the aircraft configuration will be restored to what it was when that flight was saved
- You are switching from another aircraft with the engine off, in which case the aircraft will be configured in a cold & dark state
- You have enabled cockpit state saving from the Add-ons > Just Flight PA28 Warrior IIin which case the aircraft configuration will be restored to what it was when you last flew the Warrior II
You can switch to a cold & dark state using the power icon on the 2D panel selector or the 'Cold and dark' option in the menu bar.
